Ingredients

  • 2 Cans Garbanzo Beans, rinsed, drained (3 cups cooked)
  • 3 Tbsp. Garbanzo Bean Liquid
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Ground Coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Dried Chipotle or Chili Flakes

  • 1 tsp. Lime Zest
  • 1 Tbsp. Lime Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Cilantro
  • 1/4 Cup thinly sliced Green Onions
  • 1/3 Cup Oat Flour (you can purchase oat flour or pulse rolled oats in a food processor or blender)

Directions

  2. Pulse the garbanzo beans in a food processor or mash with a fork.
  3. Add the aquafaba, salt, cumin, smoked paprika, coriander, chipotle, 1 Tbsp. oil, lime juice, and lime zest and combine until incorporated. Add the cilantro, green onions, and oat flour.
  4. Let the chickpea sit for 10 minutes or up to a day in advance so that the oat flour absorbs any of the extra liquid.
